Just Right.

16 April 2009

I met my friend, Hannah for some food at Wagamamas (fusion Noodle restaurant) and I had a yummy Yasai Katsu Curry. Afterwards, we decided to wonder around the local town centre.
We ended up walking through the church which dates back to medieval times, marvelling at the beautiful Celtic tombstones.The bell ringers were hard at work and we noticed a door that had been left open. Hannah was very curious.I found a door that seemed to be the perfect height for me. I love how this door makes me look average height, I'm really not as I am about 5ft. It was like Goldilocks discovering her bowl of porridge that was 'just right'. Hannah said very seriously that they were that small because people were a lot shorter hundreds of years ago. I suppose I might even have been considered tall then!Skirt (Good One) Boots (Blowfish) Denim Moto jacket (Pepe Jeans) Bag (Marc B)We ended up at the park reminiscing about the old times we used to walk through the park to reach our sixth form college. However, we had to make a quick get away because it began to pour down with rain!This book arrived for me today, I love receiving nice new books in the post and even better if they are free! The book is YiYun Li's, 'The Vagrants'. I'm quite excited to start reading it because she has had such good reviews for her award winning collection of short stories, 'A thousand years of good prayers'. However I already anticipate this first novel to be rather bleak seeing as it is based on true events in 1979 surrounding Communist China. What books are you all currently reading?

  26. I would love to live somewhere with so much history. That's so interesting that people are buried there from so long ago. Polar opposite of where I'm from. Buildings from the 50s are historic!

    It's so crazy how much smaller people used to be. When I was in Stockholm, I went on a replica of medieval ship and I was one of the few people that could walk freely without hitting my head.

  39. What beautiful photographs :) Ooh and Wagamamas is awesome! Apparently the average height of a British soldier in the 19th century was 5'6", which means I would probably be resting my elbow on their heads lol. And wow at the free book!! I'm reading The Great Stink by Clare Clark at the moment, it's a surprisingly good read :)

  44. Oooo, graveyards :-) *ehem*

    I might have to nick that bookie off of you when I return pour ma holidays missy (^-^). I read 'A Thousand Years of Good Prayers' last year and I've still got it - it was so profound, really really amazing. Her writing is so simple and yet so evocative.
